Dragon Boat Free Press, April 1, 2006
Members of the illustrious Shogun Warriors urban canoe club dragon boat team remain tight-lipped in recent weeks, as trade rumours continue to swirl around one of the most prominent teams in the Greater Toronto Area in the height of pre-season training. The team has proudly carried the 'Champions' moniker to soaring new heights in recent years, culminating in a triumphant run at the Great White North Challenge near the end of the season.
In particular, persistent rumours suggest that S. Blackburn, the team Founder and President (with over 9 years serving at the helm) will be on the trading block. One source close to the team tells Dragon Boat Free Press on the condition of anonymity that the team is eager to end his tyrannical reign. The source further suggests that Justin Wong of Riptide infamy and an unnamed first round draft pick will be picked up in his place to lead the team to truly fulfill the Champions' destiny.
DBFP has further learned that S. Blackburn is rumoured to be in the advanced stages of negotiation with a certain Telus team for their new star ringer P1 (or is it P2?)
